How Do You Stay The Course?

This is a post I uploaded on Ambrose2Zeke's new social thing. I'm hoping to get some answers, because it would really make my Wizard101 time more fun (hopefully).

October Fun

October has arrived. And with it comes... Halloweeen! :D

Right now you can do the Halloween quests for the Pumpkin brothers in Wizard City. With it also means the holiday drops from certain bosses, the Halloween Spires (the three towers) and the return of Baron Mordecai. So make sure to stop around and have some fun!

To go along with this, Mercs4Hire is doing a bunch of weekend runs. Check it out over here.
Going to these is a great opportunity to try for the awesome Halloween loot. They also have a bunch of contests that will be going on for cool stuff too. (those are all here)

Hopefully you can have some fun with these things this month. I know I can't wait.

Though, it would be cool if they would have a new event of sorts come out for the bigger holiday celebrations every couple years or so. Repeats are never quite as fun. :\

Your very distracted host,

BP #(O_o): Through the Eyes of a Sorcerer

Earlier this week, as I checked the blogs I follow, I came upon this one by John Lifeglen called "Some Food for Blogger-y Thought". In it he shares his idea of helping out the awesome blogger community by making posts (like this one) to help promote others blogs. So here I am with a new thing I'm going to try out called BP or Blog Promotion. You can share your thoughts on it in the comments section (I would do a poll, but they seem to be broken). Since this is the first one it isn't in the full format that it will be in, but I'll try my best to work on that.

You can check out his post here:

In other news, this week Wizard101 celebrated it's 4th birthday! For all you who have been strong in staying with the game for all those year, I commend you.
We also got all the new pet updates put in recently, so make sure to go try out all the new games. They're pretty fun and a great change from the other four.

Last of all, I just want to let you know that posts are going to be a lot slower for the time being for a couple reasons: The first is that school has started and as everyone will tell you, your Junior year is the hardest... and I can already feel that! Second, my time is being spent in other lands of the gaming world (Gielinor and Skull Island).

Thanks for stopping by. Like I said, as this is just the starting of these it has some extra stuff. The next ones will be purely the BP itself. :)

Ps. Here's my idea for the setup:

- Cool Header Thingy (ideas?)
- About the blogger/blog
- A recent post of theirs

Check back next week! :D

The End is Near

So this last week we have been celebrating House-a-Palooza. KingsIsle sent out codes for awesome prizes to a bunch of their official bloggers. In this post : click* :, you can find all the info for what they're giving away, if they're still open, and a link to the pages where you can enter! So make sure to check that out as it will be updated often.

Now you may be wondering which one I have my eyes on... and that is the Diary of a Wizard contest for the Life school house. I would love to get my hands on one of those. I mean, who wouldn't want a giant tree complete with Treant guards and a swimming pool? It also is my second favorite school house (the first being the Myth school house). And it would also be nice to make it into what I see the home of Jason Earthmenders parents being. ;)

Happy contest entering! :D

Ravenwood Ball and Deathbane Maze 2012

Hello amazing readers!

Tonight was the Ravenwood Ball. I headed over around 3:00 pm MTN time and found a surprise. Area 1 was "unavailable" and a pretty good sized group of wizards were partying in Area 2 (where I was).

I ended up running into a Deathbane Maze port bus and ended up there for the next 5 hours. x_x
I was on my own for most of the time. I followed some wizards around house 3 and 4 and then ended up with a couple of people for houses 6 and 7. Sadly, in house 7 (Tower of Winter Winds) of the Deathbane Maze... we got stuck in an area with no way to get out. We waited there for about 2 hours trying to find where we were supposed to squeeze through, or even just for someone to walk by below that we could teleport to. So I ended up leaving, two houses before the finish. :\

But all in all it was a pretty fun night. I may not have got to spend time really at the big party. The game didn't allow me that privilege. All I can do now is hope that next year I might be better prepared!

Now, here are some of the photos I took as I ran around. You can view them below or at the following link.

Find more photos like this on Diary of a Wizard™ ConnectX

Thanks for stopping by the Bulletin Board!
Until I write again, have a wonderful time in the world of Wizard101 (or Pirate101 Beta if you've been lucky).

A Questing Crew

So recently I have been questing in Celestia. And as always, I have been taking pictures so I can share my adventures with all of you. I have mostly been sharing dialogue... but the thing is, I didn't take very good details. So I had these new idea that is cool for both me and for you!

It's Almost Here!

The time is almost upon us...

Preparations are being made...

The chances for prizes are high...

Have arrived...

It's time to prepare for the biggest party in the Spiral, The Ravenwood Ball!
Not only is there a chance for prizes (which is always nice), but there will be parties and wizards to meet galore!. All of this happens on just one night, August 11, 2012.

It's on that day the hundreds of wizards will meet in Ravenwood to celebrate. And the chance to get your prizes are here ->

Head over there and let the excitement begin. Whether you're going to host a party, go to a party, or just hang out at the school. There's something for everyone!

(oh, and today is the last day to vote on the poll)

Until next time,

Travels in Grizzleheim

I recently celebrated a birthday... and I got a $20 Wiz Card! (10000 Crowns)

With this card I finally was able to buy a ticket to Nidavellir (which comes with the Hall of Valor, Winterdeep Warren, and Helgrind Warren) and Ravenscar to finish travelling in the Grizzleheim area. I'm travelling in Ravenscar as I type this, setting my Celestian travels on the side. On the way I took some photo's to share my travel experiences with you.

Umm... insta-flee time!
 Just want to let you know... I really don't like fleeing, but when I saw how much life they had there was no way I was wasting my time there.

They look funny when you hit them. Hahaha

Team Mates! Maybe we have a chance now....

Getting closer...

Knocked one of them out. Boom!

Same one... but as he's about to fall.

Close up of the two of us. Hmm, that's a nice picture of me... but not in those clothes. :\

Last of the Jotuns brothers. Yay!

Fighting one of the funny birds.

Bye bye funny bird.

Oh thanks, just let me risk my life while you sit in your safe little cell.

Umm, sure... CHARGE! Give me your key please?

Oh... well that makes sense. Bird magic and wizard magic are different.

Oh great, what do I need for that?

Why can't I get some of  yours? I just need three! ... okay.
Five minutes later - "Question: I just fought a couple of them and didn't get any feathers... how did I not get any feathers from them? They're covered in hundreds of them! *grumble* dumb collection quests *grumble*"

If I find any more cool things along the way in Ravenscar I'll make sure to post them here so you can see how it's going. Hopefully I'll make it into the Tower without getting beat up too much by the funny birds... or the creepy hooded birds like Hrafn.

Oh, and once I finish travelling around Ravenscar I will use the rest of the crowns to return to Celestia and continue helping the Marleybonians in their studies. Ooh, but I must find some of those Grizzleheim music scrolls first!

There is a new poll on a change of blog design idea over on the right! And as you can probably guess, getting a Grizzleheim theme added to it (possibly... in the near or, probably, the far future).

Ps. A big thanks to all the people who have commented on my posts, they give me a much better feel of the readership than just the plain old page view stats. :)

Time Flies and I Forgot

      I was looking through the titles of some recent blog posts and noticed that Talon Thunderblade's Blogoversary was on May 31. (link here)

     The moment it loaded up I immediately face palmed...
     Now why would I do that? Maybe because I myself started this blog (though the title has varied) one year and two days ago! There is even another amazing surprise to add onto this.

     We here have had over 1000 visitors! =D

This calls for some prizes!

Long Time No Read

*Yawn* Why am I still awake? I'm half asleep already... bet this post is gonna be great. ;)

Ah, finally. The school year is ending (wait, I made through my sophomore year that easily?) and you know what that means. It's time to party! --- no, it's not

I'm glad to say that with summers arrival, comes the return of my sporadic posting. I know that not many people read this and that I'm not the best at sharing my opinions and ideas, but hey, doing this has helped me a bunch. Ever since I got into the online social world of Wizard101, be it blogs or Twizards, I have slowly been able to talk to people better. I've met people from all over the country (online) and had great times fighting creatures along side them. It's a time that I will never wish I hadn't had. (ooh, a lovely double negative).

Now that I've gone off on some random tangent, I'm going to return to why I really started to write this post. What brought me here late this night as I am getting ready to shut everything off and go to bed is that as part of the Swordroll's Blog contest he asked that I (well everyone) share's it for everyone to see on some other source. So yeah, it is partly the fact that I could really enjoy nice prize... but as you see from my intro, that is not what it really did. I already know that my chances of winning are very low, that's just how the dice roll. At the same time, hopefully the people who do win are able to use it to make the world of Wizard101 a little better, either for themselves or for someone else (especially if they already have what they win).

So yeah, head over here : Swordroll's Blog
Try your luck at the contest.

I want to wish Swordroll the best in his blog writing. He does an amazing job at it. May many more Blogaversaries come to him in the future.

As always I would love to see your feedback in the comments.

** Any suggestions on this? Kind of thinking of the way they call each other in Lord of the Rings... Check out the poll on the top right and let me know.

The Journal of Talon Deatheyes #3


February 13, 2012
Today I started off by finish the quest for Mindy and the Headmaster in Colossus Boulevard. I was defeated by both Baron Rotunda and Prince Gobblestone once. Then I was able to beat them (barely) on my second try. Hahaha! When I told the Headmaster of what had occurred and how the Gobbler King had been chased out with his people due to witches in their old land he was very sad and decided to let them stay.

Then he sent me to defeat this evil dead guy who had stolen some books, or at least we thought he had. 

Stormdrain Tower... home of the creepy dead guy

It ended up that he only had a key and a journal. But to our surprise it led us to a unthinkable place! I had a friend take some pictures when I went to explore it.

Brr, that water was cold!

What is this? A door? Why is there a skull on it?

To my surprise... through the door I found the death teacher and the death school. And he hadn't even noticed! I went and told the Headmaster and he was surprised too. 

He then proceeded to tell me of what he had read in the journal while I was gone. Not only was Malistaire in a whole new world... but he was after a book. And guess who gets to stop him? Yep, me as always. Cool thing is I got the Spiral keys to both Wizard City and Krokotopia. Bartleby is supposed to tell me how they work the next time I stop by there.

Also I'm really excited because I head from Farley that there is another gardener mole in this Krokotopia place that has some even better spells that I can get. Yay!

I will do a little check to see if anyone else needs my help in Wizard City though before I start running off to other worlds. A girl by the death school was asking for help... and I heard a boy in the Library was in need of some help for a newspaper also. Once those are all done it's off to Krokotopia I go!

Until the next time I right,
To the Spiral (and with no armor!)

Yep, it will have been 3 years since I joined this amazing community.

"Any ideas on how you're going to celebrate?"

Yep, I was thinking of having a smallish party on Saturday. I would probably need to decorate though... hmm. Maybe we could do some runs of a dungeon like Big Ben or Kensington and then head to my most --decorated house. Have you got any ideas?

Well I should have some more details by Wednesday. Any ideas are very welcome!

Input... please?

So, lately I haven't been posting very much due to two things :

Number 1 being school stuff and being kind of tired of running around solo...

Number 2 being being I don't know what to post about (well, I do but... yeah, I'll get to that in a second)



Okay, here's what we'll do.

Number 1 you peoples can't help with much (unless you happen to already be on me* friends list)
Number 2 though, this is where you can help. What I want you, the readers, to do is look back through my archive. Find some/a post(s) that you liked.There are three ways you can then submit these : 1- Comments (but why would anyone do that...they haven't really in the past) 2- E-mail (address is on the right) and lastly(sort of**) you can DM it to me via Twitter.

So yeah, check those out, send 'em in and I'll get back to you later on that.

Until next time...
